Communication is the most important part of any project from beginning to end. Other factors include what form(s) will the art be used; printed poster, marquee banner, website imagery, etc. If you have any questions on an upcoming project, I'm happy to discuss it with you. Please contact me and we can setup a call. It costs nothing to talk.
I charge per project, not by the hour and my fee is based on different variables per the project's individual needs.
The client pays for usage rights for an agreed upon time period. I retain all rights to my work, however I can provide certain exclusivity agreements.
If desired by the client, full rights can always be negotiated.
